The holy site of Trinesvaraswamy Temple in Mysore overlooks the Mysore Palace and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Legend has it that Lord Shiva instructed a sage to build the holy Lingam there. The Lingam represents the three eyed Shiva. The south entrance of the temple also houses a metallic statue of the god.

Build in the Dravidian style, this temple also possesses unique idols of Virabhadra and Dakshinamurthy. Historical data confirm that this temple was initially located on the banks of Devarya Sagar but as the fort was expanded during the reign of Kanthirava Narasaraja Wodeyar (1638-1659), it later became part of the fort.

Some of the main highlights of the temple are the main entrance which used to have a towering Gopura, which was demolished during the 18th century. The statues of Kumara, Surya, Kshetrapala and Dakshinmurty are also worth watching.

If possible try to visit this temple during the Shivratri night, when a special puja is organized which goes on from late night till early morning.
